Space debris in general has become a major problem for modern space activities. Guidelines to mitigate the threat have been recommended, better prediction models are developed and an advanced observation of objects orbiting Earth is in progress. And still – without the implementation of active debris removal (ADR), the number of debris in space will exponentially increase. To support the ongoing research on ADR-missions, this paper presents the updated mission design of ADReS-A (Autonomous Debris Removal Satellite - #A) - one possible concept for the multiple active removal of large debris in Low Earth orbit, in this case especially of rocket bodies of the SL-8-type. ADReS-A as chaser satellite is supported by at least 5 de-orbit kits, allowing for the same number of targets to be removed. While ADReS-A is conceived for handling of the target, the kit’s task is the controlled re-entry of the designated rocket body. The presented mission design forms the basis for the simulation environment in progress. The simulation shall serve as testbed to test multiple scenarios in terms of approach and abort optimization or different tumbling modes of the target. The ultimate goal is the test of autonomous behaviors of the spacecraft in case of unforeseen failures during the approach phase. Considerations to create a simulation for the described mission are presented and discussed. A first visualization of pre-calculated aboard trajectories can be found at the end of this paper.
